AMP Capital Multi-Asset Fund

Part of AMP Capital's goals-based investing range of funds.

Helping grow wealth steadily over time 

Many investors, particularly those nearing retirement, are looking for investment solutions that help them meet their personal and lifestyle goals. For some investors, this might include a short-term need to fund a holiday, or to purchase a new car.

By seeking to provide a return above inflation* rather than outperforming a market index, the Multi-Asset Fund aims to provide an investment outcome which more closely matches investor needs. It also applies risk-mitigation strategies that aim to manage volatility within the fund, so investors are less likely to experience sharp declines in their wealth.

The Fund’s objective 5.5% above inflation* (before fees) on a rolling 5 year basis. Inflation refers to the Reserve Bank of Australia inflation rate (Consumer Price Index) - trimmed mean.

"The Fund is constantly looking for the right combination of investments and strategies to deliver on our objective of strong real returns with the least risk of loss. Importantly as conditions change the fund is able to adapt as required”.

Matthew Hopkins, Senior Portfolio Manager
  • Dynamic asset allocation

    Markets can change often and abruptly; it’s important that we have the flexibility to adapt with them, so we can increase exposure to rising assets and reduce risk by avoiding or selling unattractive assets.

  • Using diverse strategies

    Our research teams and global partners provide access to high quality assets and strategies outside of traditional equity and fixed income markets to help provide greater diversification and smoother investment journey.

  • Tail risk hedging

     

    We aim to cushion investors from bearing the full brunt of market falls by employing a tail hedging strategy, which involves buying assets that can rise in value when other assets are making a loss.

  • Focus on risk management

    We have a strong focus on risk management, which is integrated throughout the investment process and ensures that the Fund is well diversified in terms of asset classes and manager strategy.

How does this fund fit into your portfolio?

This Fund may be suitable for those who:

  • Are in retirement or thinking about retirement, who don’t have the capacity to sustain a sharp decline in their wealth, and desire steady growth in capital to pay for lifestyle wants, eg pay for a holiday or purchase a new car, or simply enjoy a higher standard of everyday living.
  • Are in the accumulation phase and want to grow their wealth over time, but are sensitive to large declines in portfolio value and want less volatility.

What are the risks?

Returns are not guaranteed

When you invest in a managed investment scheme, you should be aware that returns are not guaranteed – future returns may differ from past returns, the level of returns may vary, the value of your investment may vary, and there may be the risk of loss of invested capital.

Market risk

The fund invests in securities that are listed on share markets around the world. This means that the Fund will be affected by any risks associated with these securities. This includes how they perform, their strategy, management, how sustainable their earnings are, and other factors that affect the value and performance of a security, as well as those associated with international investments.

Credit and liquidity risks

The fund invests in alternative assets. Traditional risks such as credit and liquidity risk can be magnified for alternative assets.

The ‘Risks of investing’ section of the Product Disclosure Statement and Incorporated Information for this Fund provides further information about the risks noted above, as well as information about other investment risks of which you should be aware.
